The right blush can make a world of difference!

There are many different types of makeup. This category may help to decide which one is right for you.

The Different Types of Makeup

Cosmetics are just as diversified as the individuals who wear them. There are heavily pigmented cosmetics, for example, foundations, that are designed to give medium to full coverage, as well as sheer cover makeup for those that prefer a more natural look. The choices don't end there! Consider:

Color for the Lips

The lips, with the exception of the eyes, are one of the most important features of the face. How richly pigmented this feature is depends solely on the wearer. Can't decide between lip gloss, a lip stain, or a lipstick? This category will show you the advantages and disadvantages of all three.

Different Products Equal a Pretty Look

Different types of makeup can also help to present the prettiest face possible. Whether you use blush, color science mineral makeup, or a heavy-duty concealer, or a combination of all these products, this category can help you decide which product to use.

Permanent Makeup

Permanent makeup is another option when it comes to deciding amongst the different types of makeup, but it may not be one that you normally think of. Articles like our Soft Tap permanent makeup, permanent eye makeup, and permanent cosmetics can help you choose the best look.

Natural Makeup

Have you ever wondered about trying natural makeup? Many newer beauty products are natural or organic. Organic cosmetics are defined as makeup derived from plant materials, or from organic or naturally occurring compounds. Additionally, once a cosmetic is certified as "organic", it means that it has not been exposed to pesticides. Several articles housed within this category, including our organic lipstick article, can help you learn more.
